A proactive approach to your agency's security posture is a highly cost-effective way to reduce your cybersecurity exposure; particularly when you consider security breaches have increased by 11% since 2018 and 67% since 2014. To help you reduce your exposure, the Essential 8 are the fundamental elements from the Australian Signals Directorate's (ASD) 'Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents'. They provide a solid baseline towards protecting your agency from security breaches, as well as damaging malware. The costs of implementing these strategies, along with the investment of staff training and upgrades far outweigh the potentially crippling costs of a massive compromise. These cyber exposure measurement technologies help you track and measure yourself against the Essential 8 Guidelines. And, to help you further, we've produced this 'essential' guide, mapping our technologies to the various elements of the Essential 8; instilling confidence you're taking proactive measures to stop attacks in their tracks.
